Release/Review Blitz + Giveaway: Hold on to Hope by A.L. Jackson

“My FAVORITE!! The love, the bond, the soul connection.... there will never be a love as destined and powerful and sweet and beautiful as the once in a lifetime love of Evan and Frankie Leigh!!!!!!!!”  - USA Today Bestselling Author Lauren Rowe

A best friends-to-lovers stand-alone romance from NYT Bestselling Author A.L. Jackson


Evan Bryant wasn't your typical hero.
But he was mine.
Broken by the worlds’ standards, he was still the strongest boy I would ever know.
My best friend. The boy I’d given everything to. My heart, my body, and the promise of forever.
The day I’d needed him most, he walked away.
He left me shattered and questioning the love I’d thought we’d shared.

Three years later, I wasn’t prepared for him to return to Gingham Lakes.
It wouldn’t have mattered if he still wasn’t the most beautiful man I’d ever seen.
My fingers still would have ached to caress his skin.
My body still would have begged to get lost in his touch.
And my heart . . . it would have always sung his name.
But time changes things. With it, secrets that could ruin everything.

Can we find a way to love again, or have the fears of our past stolen the hope of our forever...

"Ahhh, my loves!! IT IS HERE! IT IS HERE! I can't even express to you how freaking overjoyed I am over HOLD ON TO HOPE! This is my favorite book I have ever written, and Evan is absolutely everything - more than I ever could have imagined when I started writing. Evan and Frankie Leigh's story came to life in a way that absolutely CAPTURED me, heart and soul, and I am so excited and proud to share their story with you! "

"Did you really think I loved you so little? That my love was so superficial that you could leave and I'd forget you? Did you really think you could erase the spot where you are carved inside of me?"

I love friends-to-lovers and second-chance romances, and when the lead characters are the kids from previous books (Fighting series book #1 and #2) I read and enjoyed, it brings me extra joy. I was pretty excited to get started on Hold on to Hope. The main characters are Frankie Leigh (daughter of Rex from Show Me the Way) and Evan (son of Hope from Follow Me Back). They have had a strong bond and friendship from the moment they met when they were just five and eight years old. Evan has genetic defects: deafness and a transplanted heart. He shouldn't be alive and his life expectancy isn't high either. He feels like a burden to his family and friends, that they always will worry about him and not be able to live their lives to the fullest. However, Frankie Leigh has loved him so strongly and unconditionally. Their love was just so beautiful to witness in both the short flashbacks and present time. I felt a strong connection with and between them.

"All I ever wanted was to love you right. Be enough of a man to do it. To stand for you. To protect you. To take care of you. I never wanted you to see me as a burden. As a weight."

AL Jackson always does such an incredible job in making you live through the characters. Her writing style is very poetic and addictive. She will always pull at your heartstrings with her emotional scenes. Especially the flashbacks were a homerun in this book, I loved seeing the friendship and love grow over the years. I also loved seeing how the rest of the characters from the Fighting series were doing. It was just so nice to be reunited and see Frankie Leigh and Evan get their HEA. I can always depend on AL Jackson to come up with the best characters and straight forward romance that makes sense. No unnecessary drama or miscommunication that makes you want to pull your hair out. I fully understood why the characters made the decisions they did. I am just happy they found their way back to each other, because they were made for each other. The emotional scenes will bring tears to your eyes, the sex scenes will make you feel hot, and the suspense will have you on the edge of your seat.
